Apprenticeship Standards are here!
Did you know…?
The way everyone does apprenticeships is changing from ‘Framework’ to ‘Standards’… and now, all employers must be registered on what’s called the Government Gateway to be able to get funds to pay for your training course.
Why are Standards replacing Framework?
- Standards are replacing Framework across all apprenticeships – a requirement from both ESFA and Ofsted – and affects all training providers.
- The main purpose is to place greater importance on the teaching and learning time between you, the apprentice, and your tutor – and to involve your employer much more too.
The Level 3 childcare course would suit you if you are currently working in a role where you carry out regular child observations and deliver planned activities for children under 5 years. This course is ideal if you want to learn how to promote a child’s physical, emotional and social development.
You’ll be assessed through a mixture of ‘at home’ and ‘at work’ tasks, which your assessor will walk you through, working with you to find out what learning style suits you best and tailoring your assessments to it.
About The Course
What is involved?
The EYE qualification (formerly NVQ Level 3 in Childcare) is made up of 17 mandatory units. For each of these units, you’ll need to demonstrate your knowledge, understanding and practical skills as part of your childcare apprenticeship.
As with anything worthwhile, this Level 3 childcare qualification requires you to dedicate some of your time to it. This can be between 12-20 months, but afterwards, you’ll have the fantastic feeling of becoming a professionally recognised Early Years Educator and set yourself up for a long and rewarding childcare career.
Do I Need To Attend Classes?
Great news – there are no classes to attend! Your
As part of your Level 3 childcare course, you’ll benefit from phone and email support from your Parenta assessor if there’s anything at all that you need help with.
